Leisure and Luxury Travel Advisor

Growing up in a family of pilots, I was always inspired to travel whenever possible.

I was able to explore Mexico, England, France, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. My minor in international business from Virginia Tech allowed me to study abroad in Greece and Turkey - the best experience.

I love languages and music and the way those two things can bring people together all over the world.

Now with my own children, I believe traveling with them is the best gift I can give them. Last summer we had a wonderful time in California traveling to Los Angeles, Paso Robles, Yosemite, Monterey, Napa and Sonoma. We love cruising whenever possible, as well as trips to Disney and Universal Studios.

Wherever my kids' current interests are is where we will go next! That is what makes life an adventure.

I find one of the greatest benefits of finding a good advisor are the relationships that advisor has with their in-country partners. The teams on the ground in each country provide a wealth of knowledge and special touches that elevate a client's trip to another level.

Being immediately greeted upon arrival at the airport by someone who is expecting you, someone who knows where you came from and where you are going, creates a seamless, stress-free experience and converts the average traveler to an engaged explorer.

Knowledgeable guides and drivers who know your personal interests and preferences in advance create engaging and worthwhile experiences that make lifelong memories you will truly appreciate.

The Unforgettable Honeymoon
Julie is knowledgeable, a great listener, and someone who gets things done! Because of the recent situation we have had to delay some exciting trips that Julie helped us create but we are looking forward to having the experiences in the future. Mad Travel also handled our five week honeymoon in Australia and New Zealand which was beyond our wildest dreams.

A truly great trip!
Julie is great to work with. She is knowledgeable, always responsive and very willing to to work for your satisfaction. She went above and beyond dealing with an issue we had with the airline for our trip to Switzerland.

Julie makes it happen!
Julie treats you as if you are her only client but I have been in her busy office and know otherwise. Endlessly patient and resourceful coordinating travel through time zones, with pet, meeting a friend traveling on opposite coast, getting best car rental deals and of course hotels. Julie never loses sight of your concerns - she successfully deals with them. Competent and personable, Julie stays with you all the way while enhancing your travel plans wherever she can. Particularly helpful in my case traveling coast to coast from small airports with limited service and managing to get me to my destination to pick up my rental car before dark which is a must for me. Julie even surprisingly managed to get my rental upgraded to an SUV at last minute for same price.

Julie has worked with me on three different travel plans and it really has been a pleasure.

Our children and my wife will never forget it.
She is very efficient and professional with all the details of our 3 week Christmas trip to Hawaii. If you are considering Hawaii ask to look at our itinerary you couldn’t do better.

An Excellent Travel Agent brings RELIEF!
We have truly enjoyed meeting, and getting to know Julie while making plans to travel. She is pleasant, extremely competent and most importantly for me — down to earth friendly. I immediately felt I was in the hands of someone I could trust to do the job well. . I have acted as my own travel agent for many years now, so I’m very aware of what it takes to put together a first class trip. It is a RELIEF to know that Julie is handling my traveling plans as we will be embarking on trips that will require so much more planning and preparation, than many of our previous travels inside the US.
I highly recommend her for all your travel planning!
